The lyrics and idea for ́Keep The Light On ́ had long had some shelf-life without an actual direction. But when Iris heard a special beat by the Danish producer-group Pitchshifters, she immediately knew that the song had finally found its place. That production accompanied by her rap in the verses and her singing in the chorus, rounded off beautifully by just a touch of some chilled brass. ́Keep The Light On ́ has a slower and more subdued sound, that fits the meditative theme. A theme that describes the period after two lovers have broken up. A time between the last love in the relationship and the complete liberation from each other as ex-lovers. But where you still hold strong feelings for each other and deep inside know its not the best of ideas to give in, let go and turn off the lights, even for just one night.
